I moved in with my partially-disabled mother a couple of years ago, and had to pare down from a full house-worth of stuff to what would comfortably fit in with her possessions. (I did store a bit!) So I am forever trying to find ways to store things without taking up space.
Also, I make jewelry and like to buy from other crafters, so I have an awful lot of jewelry, especially necklaces.
And, lastly, I had the perfect empty spot between my closet and a window that just screamed "Use me!". So I did :
I'm going to fill in the screw holes and touch up the paint, but I've realized that I have more necklaces than will reasonably fit on these three holders, so I'm looking around at other weird spaces to fill with hangers.
I love that I get to look at all my pretty pieces every day!
